GAO announces new site for Men’s Mid Amateur Championship

UXBRIDGE, ON— The Golf Association of Ontario (GAO) has been forced to make site and date changes to their 2014 championship schedule. The major change will see the Men’s Mid Am Championship move both its site and date in addition to some of the qualifiers.

“With the late start to the season, and damage that has been done to some of the courses, specifically greens, we have had no choice but to find alternatives for some of our events,” explained Dave Colling, GAO Director of Rules and Competitions.

The major change comes to the Men’s Mid Amateur Championship. The event was scheduled to take place June 17-19 at the Burlington Golf and Country Club but because of the damage they incurred during the winter, the championship needed to be moved. Now, the Men’s Mid Amateur Championship will take place at Taboo Resort June 23-25, with the practice round on Sunday, June 22.

“We want to thank Taboo for stepping up and offering to host the event on such short notice,” added Colling. “The entire GAO community has been very supportive in dealing with this situation as a result of the tough winter. We thank all the clubs who have helped with not only the new championship site but also the qualifiers.”
